by Eddie Money
Released: Jan 1977
"Two Tickets to Paradise" and "Baby Hold On" are two of Eddie Money's most well-known songs, the pair of which put Money on the map when this debut appeared in 1977. Combining Billy Joel-style lite rock, touches of Motown and the studio slickness of the impending '80s, Eddie Money was always a sort of Huey Lewis and the News you didn't have to hate yourself for liking. There's a little Cheap Trick in there, too, especially in "Wanna Be a Rock 'N' Roll Star." Amazingly, the case can be made that The Black Crowes were influenced by "Save a Little Room in Your Heart for Me."
